Air quality in Bromley

Whilst certain modelled data shows that Bromley may be the greenest and least polluted of all London boroughs, we know that poor air quality  is associated with a number of adverse health impacts; it is recognised as a contributing factor in the onset of heart disease and cancer. Additionally, air pollution particularly affects the most vulnerable in society: children and older people, and those with heart and lung conditions.

We have produced a draft Air Quality Action Plan 2020-2025. This has been produced  as part of our statutory duties as an Air Quality Management Area has been declared in the borough. This is required by the Greater London Authority (GLA) under the London Local Air Quality Management (LLAQM) statutory process.

Consultation on the draft Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP)

We are undertaking a consultation on the draft Air Quality Action Plan 2020-2025, and we want to know your views.

Our proposed plan outlines the actions that we will take to improve air quality in the London Borough of Bromley between 2020-2025. Schedule 11 of the Environment Act 1995 requires us to consider any representations made in accordance with the consultation. Therefore, statutory and public consultation will be carried out over a four week period. The closing date for comments will be 10 August 2020.
